Subject: Holy Smokes!
Set 2 of this was my second tape, and part of that first moment when I got to know the Dead. I haven't heard this show since that tape got eaten in 1989.
The first time I really heard them (other than bad studio stuf on the radio that i never paid attention to!) was when my friend threw 8/10/82 into the tape player and he made me listen to space, which I thought was fine, but then when they came out of it into Iko, I first got totally confused and then I got lost for what seemed like a really long time.
I was hooked...
Then this show: another friend did a rush copy of it, gave me the tape without a set list, I didn't know any of the songs and didn't know their names.
NOW: I downloaded this yesterday, and on my way home I put on my headphones, turned on my walkman.. oops, put in my earbuds and turned on the iphone, went to Take a Step Back, and wouldn't you know it. There it was, people getting bug-eyed and then wait, what's that, can you pick up a lick? a rhythm? a drum? a.... YEEAHHHHH!!!!!!!!
I swear, the hair stood up on my head.
Five stars for the music, five more for the memories.

ahh yes.. I am hard pressed to find a show I like better on this archive.
This show contains two of my top favorite dead moments of all time, the scarlet>fire being one and the morning dew being the other. How does that happen twice in the same show..??!!?!?!
no wonder I will keep coming back to this one until the day I die.
I will never understand how people consider this show overrated... unless they weren't able to make it and are jealous of those who did.
Of course, if i went to, for example, 05-07-1977 (another classic but pales in comparison to this one, IMO) and couldn't make it to this one, I would probably be trying to convince myself this show is overrated too.
a raging scarlet>fire, followed by a great estimated, then a st stephen>NFA>st stephen sandwich?! followed by a morning dew that will send chills up and down your spine every time... does a dead show get any better than that?!
The matrix will transcend you to another place in time-- words cannot express how grateful I am to have this sound grace my ears.
Subject: Row Jimmy & Dancin'
Everybody likes this show and there are others that I like better but the Row Jimmy and Dancin' stand nicley on their own. I think that's the best Row Jimmy ever. The Dancin' just blows my mind everytime I listen to it. Super funky! Garcia has great stealth riffs in this show, you listen carefully....
Subject: Enter The Matrix
Really a great show, and the matrix sounds just perfect.
Everyone is just playing at their best.

A glorious celebration of the grateful Dead ! This matrix will be rocking Dead fans for many generations to come, Hard to upgrade a "betty board" but in my opinion this is done. The mix puts you front and center for one of the best shows ever laid out in the name of rock&roll, Long live the Grateful Dead !
Just a great job on this all together. Sounds so awesome on my headphones. Alive. My favorite Scarlet > Fire today! Happy 5/8!

Subject: Best of Both Worlds
My first time hearing a Matrix mix and all I can say is WOW! I never thought of blending a soundboard with an audience tape. Absolute genius.
The Betty Board is superb, but this takes it to an even higher level. It's like being at the show.
Kudos to the engineer of this recording.
Subject: Barton Hall
Ahh yes...Cornell '77 Being born and raised in CNY I have heard many different copies of this show throughout the years. This is by far the best mix to date. The matrix between the Betty Board and the audience recording is "just exactly perfect".
Subject: Thank God
At least there is a matrix of this show
Life's not completely unfair.....
Subject: The Bottle Was Dusty......Take a step back
Whoa, what a show!!!!! This shows off some of the Dead's mastery of musicianship. And the Matrix really makes it shine. Thank you so much for wonderful re-mastering!!!! This certainly belongs in everybody's collection! I jam out to this regularly. First Set just melts and I even excuse the odd drop out right as Lazy Lightning ends and Supplication begins, still hot as hell. Jerry's soloing on Brown-Eyed Women is not to be missed, same with the slide action on Jimmy. Second set is a blast from the beginning, really makes me "Take a step back", one of the best Scarlet / Fire to begin with and the Estimated is just on!!! Grab this show!!!

Subject: Take a step Back....
I remember when I was a kid listening to my older brother's bootleg of this show in his car, by far his favorite, with Bob and Jerry chatting about the guys getting Bug eyed in the front row, probably not from the close proximity to the stage. Use to AUD metalic tape hissing and dubbing screw ups, this is a blast from the past and so worth the listen. Beats out a few Dick's Pick's, well done.
Subject: Being There
I am blessed to have attended this amazing show. Obviously, at the time we had no idea of the historical significance of this performance in GD lore, but I do remember thinking this was the best Dead show I had ever witnessed (first 3/73 at the Nassau Coliseum) when we exited the show in the wee hours to a fresh blanket of snow from a freak spring storm. That winter was the blizzard of '77 in Buffalo and caused me to transfer to Arizona State the following fall. Amazingly, I had to miss the next nights show in Buffalo as we were heading back to Long Island (another incredible performance that I only got to enjoy on tape/CD). Spring '77 was magical. I did know one thing though, the "Scarlet/Fire" was the most beautiful performance of a Dead tune I would ever witness. After all these years and countless (mostly West coast) shows, I still believe that to be true. This impeccable stream confirms that for me.

So glad I got this dl'd...I live in the country, and me and my housemates recently entertained with a bonfire and all that good stuff. I brought my truck out in the yard to provide music, and put this on, and the night culminated with us dancing around the "Grand Finale Fire" with this oh-so-sublime Scarlet/Fire. Now I'm no dancer, but I couldn't help myself, and I wasn't even drunk, just a little stoned, and it was 25+ min of pure dancin' bliss.
A tremendous version of this show. All concerned in the making of it can be proud.

Subject: great mix!!!!
I got this one a few weeks ago,and I must say its the best sounding cornell 77 show I have heard!perfect mix of aud and instruments, sounds awesome.I have 4 diff versions of this show and this one is the best quality! THANKS to everyone responsible it is much appreciated and thank you archive!
I had collected the tapes from the shows I had attended (the best being Buckeye Lake 91 which is 73% as awesome as this one in my opinion.) This Archive repository is a gold mine! Found it when a co-worker suggested I check out the Cornell 77 show and pointed me to archive.org. AWESOME quality and AWESOME show. I had wondered who the female backup singer was at this show - Internet says it was probably Donna Jean Godchaux.

I usually don't get off on streaming audio; but this is a masterpiece. I'm going 1/8" analog jack>BSR EQ>Dyanco ST-70 TUBE AMP into early 80's vintage Bose 301 bookshelf speakers. The EQ is on, but it's flat, it sounds that good. This is better than most commericial releases by GDP. I wish I had a copy and set up for 24 bit! I bet that is really nuts. Donnie L. - KY.
Subject: Turn it up !!!!
I received this in a trade a few years back. It was the last show my receiver could handle....FRIED IT IN PLEASURE.
I had the volume @ 10, w/ euphoria twrilin' thur the whole show.
Subject: 148 stars...can I do that?
This is SICK!!! I noticed on my speakers Phil is more up front on this mix ,not that the original was anything short of stupendous but this is a fine tuned TOP NOTCH mix....thank you!!!
Subject: Can't Get Any Better? Well, now this...
Won't bother talking about the show, I think we all have heard enough to be able to recite it in our sleep. So lets just talk about the source here: the quality of this matrix is outstanding and indeed a nice new take on an old classic. Many thanks are in order for a job well done. Listen to it again with new ears.
